Jesus listens to ordinary people. He's waiting for you.
Connecting with Jesus may feel intimidating. You think you don't know enough to talk face-to-face with Him. Do you rely on a pastor or a church leader—someone more "advanced" in their faith—to be the go-between? You know Jesus loves you, but you aren't quite sure if He wants to spend time with you. Jesus wants to talk directly with YOU. Right now. Wherever you are. The red-letter words in the book of John are an invitation to start the conversation. Be open and trust Jesus with the real you. Release your burdens and problems. Experience an intimate encounter with Him. Discover that Scripture is personal and relevant. Fall in love with Jesus all over again (or for the first time).
